Grenfell's 2012 Henry Lawson Festival to inspire travel photography

A Celebration of Photography

By Darren Stones

For many photographers, the lure of travelling to towns in rural Australia is undeniable. Grenfell in the central-west of New South Wales is steeped in history and the sense of community is strong. With friendly locals mindful of promoting their town, they display pride in organising their major tourism event for the year.

Volunteers provide countless hours to organising the Henry Lawson Festival, which is held on the June Long Weekend each year. The result of their efforts is that locals and visitors from around Australia get to experience a great celebration of the arts.

In seeking to inspire people to visit Grenfell during the festival to participate in photography, I am conducting the 2012 Grenfell Festival Travel Photography Workshop. The 3-hour guided photography walk around historic Grenfell, which has been endorsed by the festival committee, will provide workshop participants the opportunity to gain a better understanding of travel photography subjects, technique, composition, and lighting. This understanding is designed to assist participants to acquire a heightened level of confidence, and to approach image making with a reasonable expectation of creating better travel photographs.

Booking
Places for the 2012 Grenfell Festival Travel Photography Workshop are limited to 10. It is highly advised to book early.

Competition and Exhibition
Photographers are provided a unique opportunity to enter their photographs in the photography competition and have those works displayed in the exhibition for the duration of the four-day festival. Visitors to the exhibition are usually impressed with the high quality of imagery displayed, and in subsequent years many have become inspired to enter their own photographs.

I highly encourage photographers to enter the festival's photography competition as it will make for a fulfilling weekend for those photographers who participate in the workshop and see their photography hanging at the exhibition.
